The Song of the South wiki last edited by fables87 on 11/09/14 07:53AM View full history

The three child protagonists are Johnny, Ginny and Toby, two white kids and an an African American one. Johnny is the grandson of a Georgia plantation owner and lives with her because his parents' marriage is collapsing. Ginny is the only daughter of a poor, rural family. Toby is a young servant. While the film was a 1940s hits and still relatively popular, there have been concerns of racism. Partly because Remus remains poor and in a subservient position after an implied lifetime of loyal service, partly because of taking an interest in the upbringing of white children rather than the black ones.
